As a millennial, with busy workdays, long weekends, and very active life, I feel sometimes that I need a quick boost of energy.
This boost can be achieved from various sources. One of my favorite sources is juice!
Do you feel tired? unmotivated? or just thirsty? this blog post will help you with some great ideas for juices that will help you with the energy boost that you need.
Best Juices for Energy
Green juice is a popular juice because it often combines your leafy greens with something sweet to flavor the juice. All it takes is spinach, cucumber, green apple, fresh ginger, and lemon.
You will want to peel and chop each of your ingredients before putting them through the juicer. Once they are prepped, feed them into the juicer and chill. The juice is ready once is nice and cold.
Spinach is packed with tons of vitamins and nutrients such as iron, calcium, and magnesium, which give you a healthy boost of energy while still being good for your body in the long run.
Watermelon Kiwi Lime
Watermelon is high in citrulline, an amino acid that promotes good blood flow and blood pressure. Drinking watermelon juice can help your body feel good which, in turn, can make you feel more energized and ready for the day.
The kiwi is the real key to the energy boost in this juice as it provides large amounts of vitamin C and iron to help fight exhaustion. Peel and cut these fruits to be juiced and add a squeeze of fresh lime at the end for that little burst of flavor.
Carrot Apple Ginger Lemon
Carrots are super-rich in Vitamin K1 among other nutrients the body needs. Carrots help balance blood sugar levels which can make you feel better if your blood sugar is high or low. Carrots are low in glycemic index, which, according to health.com, helps provide a steady flow of energy.
Apples are known for providing a great source of energy that gets gradually released into the body, providing a small flow of energy that can last for hours.
You can add ginger and lemon to the juice for a zing of flavor that will surely perk you up.

Best Juices for Stamina
Beetroot provides our bodies with nitrates, which our body turns into nitric oxide. Nitric Oxide boosts stamina, improves blood flow, and even lowers blood pressure.
